Visit the new and improved Design Museum


On the 24th of November, the Design Museum will reopen its sleek and sophisticated doors to the general public after closing down for relocation and refurbishment last year. Now located on Kensington High Street, this museum is dedicated to documenting the history of design and architecture, as well as showcasing new British artistic talent to the world. There are permanent exhibitions on as well as constantly changing exhibitions throughout the year, with challenging titles that tackle the way we look at the world and questions the power of aesthetics.

Where is it?

The new Design Museum is located moments away from the High Street Kensington tube station in west London.

It would only take you 15 minutes to get to High Street Kensington from the Park Grand Paddington Court Hotel London, making the new Design Museum a quick an easy London attraction for you to get to.

How much is it?

For the first time since its original conception, the Design Museum will have free entry.

However, be aware that certain future exhibitions will require tickets to enter.

What’s on?

In the spirit of rebirth and pursuing new creative horizons, the Design Museum has several cutting-edge and innovative design exhibitions on from November 24th onwards.

To kick start the Design Museum’s quest for reaching new conceptual heights, the exhibition ‘Fear and Love: Reactions to a Complex World’ (24 November 2016 – 23 April 2017) explores issues of our time – both individual and introspective as well as on a world-wide scale.

From the same date, November 24th 2016, you can see the ‘Beazley Designs of the year’ (24 November 2016 – 19 February 2017). Now in its ninth year, this award celebrates the best of ingenuity, inventiveness and flair in new design.

Previous exhibitions have explored intriguing and challenging titles such as “Our Bond with Brands” and a surprisingly deep exploration of “50 Years of British Road Signs”.

It will be fascinating to think what the Design Museum will bring the world in 2017.
